But Germans blamed it for signing the Versailles treaty and for hunger and unemployment. Hitler set up a fascist style party called the Nazi party. Hitler wanted to tear up the Versailles treaty and unite all Germans so they could form a great German empire. He blamed the Jews and the communists for Germany’s troubles and wanted to destroy them. When the Great Depression 1929 forced many factories to close, desperate Germans voted for the Nazi party.
There were four main ‘battles’; The Battle for Grain, Battle For the Lira, Battle for Births and Battle of the Marshes. Although they tried to improve the standard of living, the battles failed and did not do much to improve it. The Battle for the Lira had four main aims: fix the lira at 90 to £, reduce inflation, confirm image of Fascism bringing stability to Italy and to show to the Italians and the world that the currency of Italy was a mighty power. The actions that were taken to do this were banks had to institute tight controls on the money supply, then the economy was deflated to drive up the value of the |Lira. In 1927, quota 90 achieved when the lira returned to cold
Mazzini gave tremendous support to Italian Nationalism and he spent most of his time convincing Italians to support the creation of a democratic, self-governing state of Italy. His complex ideas such as ‘The Brotherhood of people’ meant that he had limited appeal to upper classes, and his radical views also did not appeal to the middle classes and liberals who opposed violence. The revolutions in support for national unity in the years 1848-9 meant that for 18 months the Italian peninsula was in turmoil until the gains won by liberals were reversed and the revolutions that had taken place were suppressed. To a large extent I agree that Mazzini’s limited appeal contributed to slow progress, however I think that there are other over-riding factors such as the influence of the Church and lack of foreign support that would have also contributed. It could be argued that Mazzini’s ideas were the main reason for the slow progress of national unity in Italy in the years 1815-48.
Germans were forced to pay for various repairs across different country what inevitably caused damage to country’s economy. The instability across the nation has been consistently rising, and the ruling government had to resign. In Italy the dissatisfaction of the nation with the government has also been significant, especially taking into account the defeat at Ceporetto or the collapse of the economy, which over past years was based on manufacturing weapons and other equipment that was needed for participation in the war. Both in Italy and Germany people were desperate for a change, they needed economic growth and development. There were no jobs, poverty was spreading.
ADJUSTMENT AND STEREOTYPES AGAINST JEWISH IMMIGRANTS 1 Insight on Hardships of Jewish Immigrants Matt Fischetti Union County College Professor Cohen; Minorities in America, Sociology 206 ADJUSTMENT AND STEREOTYPES AGAINST JEWISH IMMIGRANTS 2 In the late 1930’s and early 1940’s the world was falling into despair and chaos. Some European Countries, especially Germany were staging a genocide of an entire ethnicity. At the helm of all these horrific actions was a man named Adolph Hitler. He still could not get over the mortifying truth behind the World War I. He tried so desparately to create a total blonde-haired, blue eyed poplation and anyone who wasn’t of that demographic was to be executed.
To what extent was Mussolini’s rise to power in 1922 due to his own talents and abilities? By 1900 Italy’s process of unification had been largely completed. However, this completion did not spread beyond territory, and in all other respects, Italy was still very much segregated. As a result of this, the nation was weak which created an inferiority complex within Italy in comparison to the rest of Europe amongst the educated classes, whilst the vast majority of the population still felt no real connection to the nation of Italy. This led to the formation of numerous political parties, spanning to political spectrum, but no clear majority of support for any.
I believe that life changed drastically for the average German in between 1933 and 1939 under Nazi and Hitler’s rule. I intend to show how life changed for these people and the many different communities in Germany in between these times. In 1933 the were lots of different communities in Germany but it was very varied on who would come out the better and who would come out the worse from Nazi rule in the long run. The community that were treated by far the worse were without question the Jewish people of Germany. Hitler and most Nazis believed that Jewish people were devils and only wanted to conquer the world and bring destruction to everything that people had worked hard to achieve.
This highlights that the population was not terrorised into supporting the regime, but persuaded through manipulation by the Nazi government. Therefore, the Nazi state cannot be classified as a totalitarian state. The Nazi party’s removal of all other political parties during 1933 reflects aspects of a totalitarian regime; however, the Nazi state did not have complete political control in Germany. Theoretically, the Führerprinzip outlined a leadership hierarchy which culminated with Hitler as the dominant leader of the State and required supreme obedience to the Führer. However, this was not manifested in reality, in which Hitler maintained power through his Kommandogewalt and appeal to the German public.
This proved a problem for the newly formed government as Italy was a predominantly Catholic country and many Italians were devoted to the Pope. The power of the Pope at that time was huge and though there would have been a few who didn’t listen to the pope, many would have done. The lack of support from the church was a significant weakness in the new liberal government and increased the government’s already minimal respect. Additionally the North South divide was influential on the lack of success for the liberal government. Italy was divided in terms of wealth; the south was poor and the north wealthy.
During this time, East Germans became fed up with the oppressive policies of the Stazi, the antics of Honecker’s government, and the hated symbol of the Berlin Wall. They reacted against the only thing they could change and tore down the wall. Poland was another major country that disintegrated from communism. Under the lead of Lech Walesa, Poland was growing a rebellious strength. With Gorbachev as Russia’s leader, reforms were putin place as well as removing many USSR restrictions of satellite countries.
